The aim of this study was to investigate the characteristics of oesophageal cancer associated with other primary cancers and the survival rate after surgery for the patients with these cancers.
Of 202 patients with oesophageal cancer treated in the Second Department of Surgery, Shinshu University School of Medicine between 1981 and 1995,31 patients (15.3%) had oesophageal cancer associated with other primary cancers.
Twenty-one synchronous and 10 metachronous associated cancers were found and 25 of them were resected.
Early-stage oesophageal cancer was much more frequent in the associated cases than in the non-associated cases.
The stomach was the most frequently associated organ.
The numbers of cases with triple and quadruple cancers were three and one, respectively.
Three of these cases had intervals of over 6 years between tumours.
Three cases with other primary cancers which had intervals of over 7 years after oesophagectomy were found, and two were carcinomas of the reconstructed gastric tube.
In the outcome after surgery for oesophageal cancer, there was no difference between the associated and the non-associated cases, and also no difference between the synchronous and metachronous associated cases.
Regarding the five-year and 10-year survival rates after surgery for the first cancers, the synchronous cases had a poorer outcome than did the metachronous cases. (...)
